If you have curly hair, we know that you are well aware of how difficult it can be to maintain those curly tresses. Unlike straight or wavy hair, circle hair is more delicate and comes with a lot of personalities, which could be a handful to handle at times, and experimenting with them only to completely miss the mark can be extremely frustrating. Hence, we here at Curlvana set out to make your experience with styling your curly hair easier. Read on to learn how to avoid mistakes in the quest to achieve silky and bouncy curls.

Have you made these curly hair mistakes? How do I avoid these silly mistakes?

1. Over-cleansing your hair

When you have curly hair, wash it every single day. Is a BIG NO! Because unlike straight and wavy hair, curly hair is inherently extremely dry, and the oils that are produced by your scalp do not easily reach the ends of your hair, thus not giving the lengths of your hair the chance to be nourished. Hence, for a good hair-washing experience, wash your hair once or twice every week to keep it healthy. In addition to this, it is also important to cleanse or shampoo your hair with a curly hair-proofed shampoo like Curlvana’s Fortifying Curl Cleanse Shampoo, which removes product buildup and grime without stripping your scalp's natural oils!

We cannot stress this enough, but do not skip your conditioner because you need to keep your curls hydrated for them to look shiny and healthy!
A Hydrating conditioner that is specifically designed for curly hair, like Curlvana’s Curl Shine Gentle Conditioner, might just be what you need to define and hydrate your curly locks without weighing them down. This intensely moisturizing conditioner defines your curls and makes every strand healthy and voluminous.

3. Skipping Leave-in-Cream

Just using an after-shower conditioner does not cut it when it comes to curly hair; it is important to follow it up with a Leave-in conditioner post-shower to minimize frizz and tangling. It is highly recommended that you invest in a Leave-in conditioner. We recommend you try Curlvana’s Curl Styling Leave-in Cream, which is specifically formulated to tackle frizz and promote incredibly soft, detangled curls without leaving a crunchy residue.


4. Waiting way too long to apply styling products

The sooner you apply your styling products to your hair, the better, because the more time between your shower and applying styling products, the more roughed up your hair gets and the more difficult it gets to style it. We recommend using a styling gel like the one from our curly hair range, A Curl-Defining Styling Gel that coats hair evenly to provide flexible hold while deeply conditioning curly strands without causing any buildup. It amplifies the curl pattern for ultimate definition and improved manageability.

5. Blow drying the wrong way

To put it bluntly, blow drying your curly hair with a normal nozzle is just not going to cut it. We are, but that’s the truth! Air-drying your hair is the best method out there for a curl head. If you are in a rush and want to hurry along the process, then we recommend you use a diffuser to reduce the heat damage to your hair.
